Zucchini pizza boats with goat cheese (6 servings)


  • 3 medium-sized zucchini
  • 6 garlic cloves
  • 12 tbsp olive oil
  • 125 g baby spinach
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 tbsp unsweetened marinara sauce
  • 700 g goat cheese


  • Preheat oven to 190°C

  • Slice the zucchini in half length-wise and use a spoon to scrape out the seeds (don't throw them away!). Put the zucchini boats on a baking sheet.

  • Peel the garlic cloves and slice them thinly with a knife. Fry the garlic in about half of the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat until it gets a little bit browned. Add the baby spinach and zucchini seeds. Fry until soft. Season with a pinch of salt and ground black pepper.

  • Spread out the marinara sauce over the zucchini boats and top with the fried baby spinach and garlic. Sprinkle the goat cheese on top.

  •  Bake for about 20–25 minutes or until the zucchini is as tender as you’d prefer and the cheese has a nice golden color.

  •  Drizzle the zucchini boats with the rest of the olive oil and season with some freshly ground black pepper before serving.
